Exciting Partnership Announcement

Hey team, I have very exciting news to share with you all. As all of you are aware, Vaughny has grown exponentially over the last few months, and I am so proud of all of the hard work from each and everyone of you. As we continue to grow, our opportunity to branch out widens. As our goals for the company expand, we are finding different ways in which to obtain them. That's why we are very excited to announce that Vaughny will be partnering up with Hickies laces, this coming May.  Hickies reached out to our marketing team this past Thursday proposing the opportunity to partner alongside them, and we have graciously accepted. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Hickies, they are not your conventional pair of laces. Unlike traditional laces that run through an entire shoe, they instead have one “hickie” or small rubber band-like unit that goes through each pair of eyelets in a shoe. They give shoes a unique and customizable look, which is exactly what Vaughny aims to do

From Basement to Business

Over the course of the past few months, Vaughny Custom Shoes has skyrocketed into success. We are overjoyed by the amount of support we've received from the community and the abundant increase in orders made, since first opening shop in October of 2019. What started as a high school girl painting her old Converse shoes in her room, has now transcended into a thriving business, bringing peoples ideas to life on their shoes for thousands across the country. The summer of 2019 is when Vaughny’s founder, Kaila Wagner, began her journey into the world of shoe painting. Bored one day, she put a paintbrush to her dirty old Converse shoe and started to paint. As family and friends began noticing her unique painted kicks, more and more requests for custom shoes started pouring in. Kaila took this as an opportunity to make a little extra money on the side, but had no idea that within 9 short months she would have her own business; selling over 1500 pairs of custom shoes. She discovered
